| I'm really liking this!
Having watched 3 episodes already, I find myself anxious to see the next one. That doesn't happen very often in TV comedy, so they must be doing something right.

Although the production could not be referred to as "subtle", there are a lot of little touches that you really need to look for. I find it best if I record the show so that I can go back and look at the little details, like changes in the background that might otherwise go un-noticed. It's sort of like the throwaways on "The Simpsons" where they pan through the house and you see skeletons in the walls - but you almost have to put the show into slo-mo to see these bits.

Spoils is like a show with a really pathetic continuity person, so that a beer bottle in one scene gets replaced by a glass of scotch in the next, and then morphs into a bottle of Coke. IMDb should cut off the "Goofs" category for this show, as there are so many intentional errors in it.

And I have suffered through melodramas like the one parodied here, which makes the satire just that much more biting. The comparisons to Police Squad and Airplane! are probably apt - I think that if you liked either of these, you'll enjoy Spoils.
